Circa 1800 - Perhaps the most extraordinary looking of the regional pocket knives, the decorative effects provides by the sanded-down decorative rivets in the handle show of beautifully against the form and color of the knife scales. Used all over the Basque region of the Southwest of France and down into Spain. Originated around Bergerac where tobacco growers added large studs on the handle to give the knife a "non-slip" handle when used to cut the gummy tobacco plants. The modern treatment of this knife leaves the now-decorative.
